A one-step procedure for a partial purification of Solanum tuberosum tuber lectin has been developed. Lectin from tuber extract or from potato wastewater was adsorbed to magnetic chitosan particles and eluted with low pH buffer. The specific activity of separated lectin increased 13 times during the purification process and the recovery was 50%.
